ETI Roads is a new FREE Rhodes Mark II electric piano sample-based virtual instrument library for Kontakt (full version).
It is a 100% free download with no hidden chains.
The ETI ROADS was created as part of a bachelor thesis at the Erich-Thienhaus Institute in Detmold, Germany. The Rhodes MKII that is available there for music productions was initially prepared and tuned for the recording of the samples.
After a week and around 50 hours of recorded audio, the instrument was now immortalized with greatest possible detail. After processing and denoising, the thousands of samples were embedded in KONTAKT, a GUI was created, and the additional functions were implemented through scripting.
It’s a free virtual instrument for Kontakt 5.6.8 (full version). The developers have captured the iconic Rhodes MKII electric piano in detail, resulting in 5790 samples in 96KHz/24-Bit .wav.
For additional expressivity, it has 42 velocity levels and dynamic release. They also added pedal and instrument noise to make it more authentic.
The newly-scripted instrument features a bass boost emulation of the original Rhodes MKI, a treble knob, and individual dynamic settings. To refine your sounds, it comes with a stereo vibrato, amp simulation with cabinet, and a reverb.
ETI Roads is available now as a free download. It requires the full version of Kontakt 5.6.8.
